Check out our ideas, and then let your own creativity take over! If you have additional suggestions, share them in the comments!
Having something like this might almost make brushing your teeth fun!
College food is OK, but there’s nothing like having some healthy snacks available while you’re studying. Treat your student to a monthly arrival of some new and tasty snacks.
More and more stores are eliminating plastic bags. Your student will appreciate having some handy, stylish, foldable reusable bags.
Your student won’t even need to roll over to see what time it is! Excellent for getting to class on time.
Looking at photos on your phone is fine, but sometimes your student may want to print some to keep or give away. Easy to use with your cell phone.
Would your student rather listen to stories than read the book? Perhaps while running, walking or commuting? Give a subscription to Audible and your student will get 2 free downloads a month.
This phone mount works for car, bike, or other locations. Since students never leave their phone behind, this will get lots of use.
What’s better than a brand new water bottle to carry everywhere? A water bottle that doubles as a blue-tooth speaker.
Weighted blankets promise a better night’s sleep by giving the sleeper the feeling of being held. A cozy way to help your student get a good night’s sleep.
Your student-on-the-go will be able to keep track of all of their chargers and cables in this carrying case.
Your student can capture all of the action as they participate in sporting events.
Better than a bulletin board for displaying photos and other decorative items.
